If you’ve arrived from Mikki Cober’s blog , hi and thanks for clicking! This week we doing something a little bit different. So instead of answering three questions on our writing process, let’s talk food!

 

 What is your best / favorite 15 minute dinner idea?

I love cooking, and even better, I love eating, so this one’s an easy question for me. If I had to choose my favourite ever dinner, it would be steak and champagne. Here’s an easy recipe that you can follow in just under 15 minutes.

Steak          Champagne

Ingredients:

  1.  A cell phone
  2. A finger
  3. A suitable dining companion (preferably hot and rich)
  4. Around $100 in cash

Method:

  •  Batter eyelashes and invite gorgeous, handsome man out for dinner (because, hey, it’s 14 years into the new millennium and we are all smart, intelligent women) – 5 minutes
  • Log onto restaurant website and book romantic table for two. Preferably away from prying eyes. If offered table near bathrooms, run, don’t walk away. – 2 minutes
  • Take cab to restaurant, picking hot sexy man up on the way. – 3 minutes
  • Order champagne and steak while flirting extensively with hot, sexy man. Avoid letting steak juices drip on your blouse unless it’s part of a seduction technique. – 2 minutes
  • Ask for check (splitting it two ways, because it’s 14 years into the new millennium…) and grab taxi, taking hot sexy man home in doggy bag. – 3 minutes
  • Enjoy!

 

Serving Suggestion – Best served warm.

This weeks questions are brought to you by Ronnie Allen

1.  Who is your favorite author other than yourself in your genre and why?

There are so many authors that I adore, it is extremely difficult to narrow it down to one. But if I really had to choose then my favourite author would be Cara McKenna. cara mckenna She writes smart erotica—sexy stories with depth. A little dark, a little funny, always emotional. She also writes red-hot romance under the name Meg Maguire. Her wonderful publishers are Ellora’s Cave, Harlequin Blaze, Loose-Id, Penguin / Intermix, Samhain, and Signet Eclipse. She loves writing sexy, character-driven stories about strong-willed men and women who keep each other on their toes, and bring one another to their knees.

2.  What is your favorite book by them and why?

My very favourite story by Cara is Willing Victim.

willing victim

It was the first book of hers that I read, and it is close to my heart. It was one of the first dark erotic romance books that I ever read, and I loved the way she crafted the story. The hero and heroine are ordinary, working class folks, but you find yourself drawn to them, wanting to know more, and ultimately rooting for their relationship. Reading this book taught me that when crafting a fine story, characterization is king.

3.  What about their style inspires your writing?

One of my favourite blogs to follow is Wonkomance. Cara is one of the contributors to this fantastic writing blog, and I love reading her tips for crafting an interesting and engaging story. For example, in this post, CREATING DYNAMIC HEROES, she writes about the 28/40 method; how to balance the traits of a hero so that he is interesting enough to have a journey you want to follow. Posts like these always make me want to write better stories, which can only be a good thing!

 I hope you enjoyed reading these questions; I had a lot of fun writing the answers. Thanks to Ronnie for setting them! And now to read more Romance Weekly Blog Hop go to http://www.brendamargriet.com/blog.html and read Brenda Margriet’s answers!
